Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡.
I’m fine,- it’s going to be a #nice and #pleasant Christmas celebration together with my children and some of their friends 🧡. And a nice celebration needs a nice, #tasty, #homemade, and #Norwegian #traditional #dessert too 😊. A celebration dessert that was #originally made for Queen Maud in 1906 in Norway, the west coast of Norway 👸.
The most #traditional Christmas- dessert in Norway is something called “#ricepudding”,- and I has been growing up with this dessert every #Christmas since I was a child and until I did change the “dessert #traditions” in my home when I was an adult and started to create my own Christmas celebration for my children and my family 😊.
I didn’t like this #dessert to much, but I did really like the cold red sauce that was served together with it 😅. Oh,- I could actually drink the sauce 😅. But I did #eat the dessert, but only just because I did hope I was the #lucky one to get the almond that was hidden somewhere in the dessert 😅.
In Norway we do eat a lots of rice- pudding and rice porridge, especially in #December ❄.
It’s a tradition in Norway to hide a almond in the Christmas- dessert. It is actually a pretty old tradition in several countries in Europe to hide “something” in the dessert or cake, but at that time it was a bean and mostly it was hidden in a cake. Whoever found that bean was allowed to come up with funny names for those around the table, or ask them to do fun things.
In Norway we have a almond in the dessert instead, and the one who get the almond finds the almond in the porridge/ pudding receives a marzipan pig or a small gift. Not everyone likes marzipan so many have replaced the marzipan pig with a small, neutral gift instead. A gift that fits just as well as a boy or girl, young or adult – precisely because you did not know who found the almond 😊.
I don’t have this tradition in the dessert anymore, but I’m not sure why. I think it’s probably because the last 6 Christmas celebration in #Spain has been a bit different then from when we was living in #Norway 😊. So there will not be any almond in the dessert I’m going to make today 😊. And to be #honest, – it doesn’t feel quite right either for me to have one gift on the table this Christmas- evening just to the one that get the almond,- and no gifts to the rest 😊. So I m dropping it this year too 😊.
The homemade, Norwegian Christmas dessert I’m going to make is called “#DronningMaudpudding”/ #Queen Maud pudding”,- and it’s a dessert that’s actually are created from the west coast of Norway around there where I’m from 😊.
The #story about this dessert is that the queen Maud was going to visit the west coast of Norway, to the #town called #Haugesund in 1906,- and at this time the west coast of Norway was very poor,- but still they wanted to give the queen a nice and tasty dessert, that also was #cheap to make and didn’t need to much #ingredients 😊.
A dessert she really would #enjoy,- and obviously she did, and the rest of her people too 😊. Because it became a very “#famous” celebration dessert on the West coast of Norway after that. This dessert is also called #Haugesunddessert,- exactly and just because it was #created in the town Haugesund. Another very good reason for me to make this dessert to our Christmas celebration this year 😊,- and actually very natural too 😊. I need to admit I’m a bit #proud of this dessert and the #history behind it 😊.
They, the chefs in Haugesund in 1906, actually created a celebration dessert that’s used to wedding as well as confirmation and baptism. A dessert for big and different celebrations 😊. And this is me and my children’s #favourite dessert, – so it was very #natural for me to #change the #traditional #Norwegian #Christmasdessert from rice- pudding to Queen Maud pudding 😊. Special also since no one of us was the biggest fan of the rice pudding either. We do eat it when we get it served,- but if we can choose something else we do 😊.
Do you want to try to make a homemade Norwegian celebration dessert? The Haugesunddessert,- The Queen Maud pudding? I can promise you that if you like it sweet and tasty and pudding too,- you will probably enjoy this dessert 😊.
The #recipe for “Dronning Maud pudding” is: ( this is the recipe I’m using and it’s for 6 person)
7 plates gelatin
7 egg yolks
7 tbsp sugar
1 dl port wine or blackcurrant juice
6 dl cream cream
1 plate ( ca 250 gr.) chocolate. The chocolate should be grated / ground to almost powder
( 1/2 dl water)
Leave the gelantine in cold water for about 10 minutes. Squeeze out the water and melt the gelantine in 1/2 cup boiling water.
Whisk stiff egg dose of egg yolks and sugar. Mix the dissolved gelatin in port wine / blackcurrant juice and mix in the egg yolk. Let it stiffen a little. Then whisk the cream and mix it in.
Lay the coat layerwise in a serving bowl with grated chocolate days between each layer and of course on top of the coat. Set to cool and then serve as a tasty dessert after a party/ celebration dinner.
I’m making the dessert today, even its 2 days before Christmas. As long as I have it in the fridge it will not be a problem,- and after the Christmas- dinner and dessert,- if there are anything left I can put the rest in the cooler 😊.
It’s not very difficult to make this tasty and sweet dessert 😊. My challenge is normally the chocolate and to get it to “powder- bites”,- special when I have made this dessert here in Spain at the summertime. It’s melting when I m doing it 😅.
I hope you will #enjoy this Christmas and Celebrateion dessert as much as we do 😊. This one is really #homemade from a #Norwegian #recipe,- a recipe from the west coast of Norway ❄😊
I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for dropping by my blog today too 🧡.
See you soon 😊.
